'AfterWords' charts the journey of Julie, a recent arrival in the afterlife, as she attempts to be reacquainted with her husband Derek who passed away many years before. The controlling dynamic throughout is that in the afterlife your physical appearance is determined by the age at which you were happiest in life. This simple conceit has significant effects on the relationships between husband and wife, father and daughter and past and present. Julie took her own life to be with Derek. This afterlife will keep them apart forever.
